You can’t stop me.

Megan O’Ryan was a city crime scene investigator – she never expected to end up at the scene of her own sister’s murder. Having found the DNA evidence to convict the St. Patrick’s Strangler who killed her sister plus 2 other girls, she is now trying to heal in the small town of Crystal Lake.

I am so glad I picked this up. It's very captivating & had me hanging on to every word. I love how Laura is able to weave the plot & characters.

LAWMAN-IN-CHARGE is a great story! I'm glad I picked up this book. The characters are very well-drawn and the plot is captivating. Megan has a heart-wrenching past and a struggle ahead of her that will test her spiritual, physical, emotional strength. Luke is a hero who will have to make some tough decisions of his own and overcome his past mistakes. The serial killer edge makes the story a page turner.

That said, the problems with Luke's son Sam are wrapped up a bit too neatly. I buy the strained relationship between father and son, especially since it is set up by the mother's death; Luke handles the difficulties as well as he can, but Sam's sudden turn from angry teenager to compassionate helper isn't quite foreshadowed enough t...more
A good book. I would've liked a little more depth to some of it, but for a quick read it was good.
